Information Hubs at six locations around the Mitchell/Yancey region will give visitors a starting point for the journey. These are preliminarily slated for 2018 for both Toe River Arts Council Galleries [Spruce Pine and Burnsville], Mica Gallery [Bakersville], the Penland Gallery [Penland], Museum of North Carolina Minerals and Welcome Center [Spruce Pine], and Toe River Crafts [Celo]. Visitors will be able to access this website to learn about arts studios and venues, experiences, lodgings, and eateries

Proposed Cluster Sign Design 

Toe River Arts Cluster Signage


Studio signs will help visitors quickly identify a Toe River Arts individual artist studio. These will be especially helpful on back roads where studios are hidden from view or serve as a residence.

Cluster signs will give a general direction to a group of studios and other cultural assets.

“Branding the environment” with the colors of the Toe River Arts logo will let visitors know that they are still in the region and help folks with directions [“Turn left at the barn with the painted roof.”]
